UK SPACE AGENCY FUNDS TECH FOR ORBITAL AWARENESS

UKSA is giving over £1m to seven firms to advance novel sensor technologies and the smart algorithms needed to interpret their data.

New approaches to tracking satellites and debris in orbit are to get a boost from the UK Space Agency.

Finding better ways to surveil objects moving overhead has become a high priority issue.

With more and more satellites being launched, there’s growing concerned about the potential for collisions.

A big worry is the burgeoning population of redundant hardware and junk in orbit – some 900,000 objects larger than 1cm by some counts, and all of it capable of doing immense damage to, or even destroying, an operational spacecraft in a high-velocity encounter.
